My System Specs

Default (FIXED)Display Glitches with Xfire 7770 1GB Ghz Editions

So my wifes build is more or less done but now we noticed a issue in only one game but the main one she plays.

In Star Wars The Old Republic she is getting glitches in video while in conversations, you will see random icons show up and issues with the player icons, this only happens when in Xfire, in normal mode it runs ok but AA is shut off and details are at medium high but run slowly, in Xfire the game is maxed out and while playing plays great 60fps locked but when you go into a conversation the game glitches out like theres no tomorrow.

Drivers are up to date
Xfire profiler is installed
She is getting 20,053 on graphics in Vantage.
Games like Crysis, and Fallout,Skyrim and many more max out with no issues but SWTOR glitches like crazy

If anyone has any ideas please help :)

I will tell you how to %100 fix it, but your not going to like it hahaha. Switch to Nvidia :D
For real though, I had this in video scenes on my CF 5870's, and it was tearing, only cure I found was gaming on a single card.

hmm I dont like that first answer :P haha maybe I will just give her one of my 7970's but her water cooling setup doesnt have enough rad to cool it... I will leave this in AMD's hands for now and hope it gets better soon.

Thanks guys:)

You do know everyone who said this in the past never got their wish lol, I used to be ATI exclusive graphics, until my CF 5870 nightmares, and I have to say the other side of the fence is much greener :) not a single problem with nvidia, be it single card or SLI.

Nvidia an myself are not friends more on a personal level then anything but I haven't tried them in years to be honest, I have no issue getting some 680's for the wifes build but right now its more about heat then anything and the 7770's were free :P

I heard a few ppl complaining about the latest amd drivers causing issues in swkor but yours sound like a xfire issue for sure, have you tried other xfire configurations in ccc? AFR? 1x1?

I will mess around with it more tonight as it is the wife's tower I rarely use it, I had 2 6970's in Xfire playing the game with no issue but gave away one so now I cant compare with the new drivers.
